    Beautiful small park in the KLCC development with lawned areas, flora, mature vegetation, lake area, sculptures, seating, walking and running tracks. I read on a flyer that the designer's vision for the park "was to blend man-made elements with nature, leaving a legacy that emphasizes the importance of our natural world with various features, including cement structures, water elements, trees, shrubs, stones, and wood seamlessly integrating." I reckon that he succeeded, many visitors were enjoying the facilities on a very warm and humid day. Some great water features and the whale sculpture in the pond near the children's playground.

    Upscale luxury mall with many of the most expensive international brands. 5 mins walk from MRT and monorel stations on Bukit Bintang (the luxury area of KL city centre)
    Beautifully laid out, spotless and calm. Some lovely restaurants and 5* cafes for an elevated experience, particularly useful if it is super hot outside and you want to cool off for a while.
    Basement food court is the place to go - amazing range of very high quality food stalls and kept spotlessly clean. I would recommend as a way to introduce yourself to the various cuisines of Malaysia.

    This is a must visit if you’re interested in art.
    The museum was beautifully curated with jewellery, weapons, textiles, books and ceramics among others, beautifully laid out in large spacious rooms.
    Really good detailed information in English as well.
    The highlight was the special calligraphy exhibition which currently occupies the first 2 floors, one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
    The shop is lovely too.. shame I didn’t have space in my luggage as I could have happily purchased half the shop!!!

    We visited the tower as part of an overall excursion, to make sure we did the Batu caves as well. Its not quite as iconic as Petronas but still offers some fantastic views. You can see Petronas from the observation deck, but only at an angle. It offers fantastic views all around and is well worth a visit. Tickets are probably to be booked in advance, it was fairly busy but minutes not hours to wait.

    This place has been promoted as a must-visit hawker street for tourists. Unfortunately, the food sold here do not represent Malaysian food. When you come here, you’re going to see restaurants serving Thai food (which you can get in Bangkok), Chinese food (which you can get from China, Hong Kong or Taiwan), or Korean food (which you will get from, yes, South Korea). Just look at the red tanglung hanging, you’d think you’re in China right? So where can you get true, authentic Malaysian food? Go to Kampung Baru. It’s a modern-day village selling authentic Malaysian food. Find these food to try: Nasi Lemak, Rendang, Laksa, Bihun Sup, Asam Pedas, Satay with Kuah Kacang, Lontong, Mee Rebus, Mee Kari, Mee Goreng Mamak, Roti Canai, Nasi Ayam, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Char Koey Teow, Wantan Mee, Pan Mee, Nasi Kerabu, Nasi Dagang. However, if you see Nasi Geprek, Ayam Penyet, Bakso, Soto - these are all Indonesian food. Better go next door (Indonesia) and try the real ones for these. Enjoy!

    Really cool bird park with lots of different species. You can get some really close photos such as the Eastern Cattle Egrets that wander around. It was good fun feeding the Rainbow Lorikeets

    Huge mall!
    A lot of high end stores. Not for the budget traveller, but still some options for them also. Nice looking mall. Plenty of places to eat. Next to KLCC PARK and right under the Petronas towers.
